Private Piano Lessons Tailored for You

Designed Around Your Aspirations

My piano lessons in Glasgow are specifically designed with your aspirations in mind. Whether you're interested in exploring classical music or learning to play jazz, my mission as an experienced piano tutor is to guide you on your unique musical journey. As your piano teacher, I can tailor each lesson to focus on your personal goals, ensuring that every step you take is meaningful and fulfilling.

Understanding the Piano

The first piano lesson is all about becoming familiar with the piano itself. We'll explore the instrument's layout, including key identification, pedal functions, and the basics of producing sound. This foundational understanding sets the stage for all future learning and development.

Finger Positioning and Technique

Good technique is paramount for any aspiring pianist. This includes proper finger positioning, hand movement, and posture correction. These elements are essential not only for smooth playing but also for preventing any potential physical strain. As your piano teacher, I offer personalised guidance to help you master these skills effortlessly.

Learning Songs and Music Theory

Learning songs that resonate with you is a significant part of our private piano lessons. I will choose pieces that match your current skill level while challenging you to grow. Additionally, a strong emphasis on music theory ensures you understand the structure and composition of the music you're playing.

Effective Practice Methods

Both piano tuition and practice are key to progress. Together, we'll develop effective practice routines that maximise your time and effort. These strategies are designed to maintain motivation and make practice sessions both productive and enjoyable. As your piano tutor, I provide ongoing support through a dedicated messaging service to answer any questions you might have between lessons.

Performance and Expression

Once you've built a foundation, we can focus on piano performance and expression. This involves playing complex pieces with emotional depth and technical precision. Experienced piano tutors, like myself, draw on years of both performing and teaching to help you achieve your musical potential.

Flexible Scheduling and Diverse Learning Styles

Understanding that every student is unique, I offer flexible scheduling options to accommodate your busy lifestyle. As your piano teacher, our lessons are adaptable to various learning styles and age groups — from beginners to advanced students, and children to adult learners.

I offer personalised corrections and adjustments to help students develop healthy playing habits that will serve them well throughout their piano performance careers.

We will cover the basics of music theory, such as note recognition, rhythm, and dynamics.
